CameraLabTester: By luring APS lens owners into el cheapo full framhoe camera territory... Canon gains more FF lens sales, and accelerating their APS lens legacy into the dustbin of oblivion.
Nikon's philosophy is better: DX APS lenses CAN be used on their Full Frame cameras... with lesser MP of course... a better legacy.
Just like their FD mount, the EF-S mount is history...
@Abhijith Kannankavil - so Canon expects 6D will be attached to L-series lenses (because non-L inexpensive Canon lenses are old, sluggish and they are incapable to reash 22MP sensor resolution)? And what's the purpose of combo of "cheap" body with expensive pro-grade lenses?
fdfgdfgdgf: A Phone as a remote LCD monitor?
"You can use your smartphone for remote camera control and operation (with the EOS Remote app),"
Does it possible?
Articulating screen right on the body is much more convenient in the field. Remote controller and remote screen on smartphone or dedicated LCD is good for studio/tripod/video with rigs...
AP7: Canon 6D may use the same shutter as Rebel series. Although the shutter in rebel camera can support 1/200 sec flash sync, in 6D it can only support 1/180sec due to longer travel (as the sensor is bigger).
May be you're totally right, but it's oddly anyway ))) When they will introduce new FF in the future, it will have 1/125 flash sync, 1/1000 max shutter speed and only manual focus - in order do not hurt 6D sales. Contemporary way of progress :)
it's not new - if you're on Android bandwagon - just search DSLR controller in Play Store
Canoman21: The 6 D was designed to be enthusiast level Full Frame. I upgraded from the 40 D to the 60 D. I could've got the 7D for a little extra but was pleased with the spec of the 60.It takes some great pictures.I will be getting the 6D as it will give me, at last, full frame image captureIt's all down to budget and taste and more importantly it is down to the operator looking through the glass composing the picture.My very first camera some 30 years ago was a cheap Zenith 35 mm. That had no auto focus the metering was a needle + /- and that was it.When Canon released the EOS 35mm cameras in the late 80's it was a dream come true. I got me a EOS 600 and still have it Canon are on to a winner as those who aspire to a 5D3 will look at the price and compare the basics. The 6D offers full frame at a cheaper cost.The auto focus will work just fine and to those whingers complaining about the 11 point AF - just use manual focus. it gives your eye the chance to govern the picture not a processor!
I also started to photograph many yearts ago with rangefinders and afterwhile with Zenit SLR. So 20 years of tech progress brougt us to manual focus again??? Definitely impossible to photograph even a small children with help from this Canon's "11 point AF..." - at least with my 60D and "the best lens for crop EF 17-55".
I was "Canon-ier" for a long time, since film cameras... I was attracted by their innovations, their huge patents portfolio, their great film cameras... I'm user of their 20D and 60D APS-C cameras. I will be happy to switch to FF just for the FULL SIZE viewfinder, for sealed body and better AF, but...It looks like Canon can offer 5DIII for $3500K and several good lenses even for much more money in this scope.. It's a pity.It's time to switch to ...Sony? they offer innovative AF, sealed body, full size viewfinder, much-much better HD video performance, smartphone-based remote control... for comparable price!!! A99 is step forward, and 6D is step back. Am I wrong?
